    as I do, that the "machine" IS the donor network. The name and ethicities have changed, but the basic dynamic is the same.

        stating reality on the ground. I don't think he was praising Brown per se. He didn't survive as long as he has as Boston's mayor without an acute perception of what works politically.

        He may have expressed his opinion inelegantly and tactlessly, but that doesn't invalidate it.

        I hope you are right. You think I like an empty suit, a flip-flopper like Brown representing our state? Not a chance. But Warren has to get on the stick if she has a ghost of a chance of getting elected.
